  1. Thanks Fort, cool it is.
  2. I am finding lots of clocks Sue, I am really feeling time ticking away........ I don't know if it works yet. Do you think the 30 year old battery will do the job, or will I have to lash out on a new ...
  3. Ta Malkey, it's a time panther!
  4. Thanks for the compliment Ken, anyone is happy to get them!
  5. I agree on the art deco style Fran. Thanks for the love.
  6. YAY, got something right! Were you able to narrow the date range?
  7. Thanks for the panther vote guys!! I always appreciate feed back from each of you, Penny, Peggy, and Mike.
  8. Nice lump of something mineral there Fort.
  9. These look 80s does 30s to me, but the experts will know for sure.
  10. Sweet ring Alan.
  11. Our wonderful Trifari expert Nutsabotsa will surely know the name of this beauty.
  12. I think probably Japanese made, just based on the style and foot.
  13. I have some similar, have never found out really!
  14. It's a beauty Glassnut.
  15. Sweetheart of a box there Fran.
  16. Nice Shannon. There were so many potteries around Florence in the 50s/60s it may be hard to find out. I suggest you have a look in the files of the Midcentury Italian Ceramic & Bitossi Collectors on ...
  17. Great bit of Murano, even better, free!
  18. It's wonderful. Would this have had a lid does anyone know? Any witness marks on the rim Mod50?
  19. Great to get this history from a music buff, thanks Thomas!
  20. I love the colour combo.
  21. Fascinating I'm sure Artfoot. Have you converted these to MP3 for traveling with?
  22. So electrodes are like noses and lungs then.
  23. Love the blue.
  24. I just love all these, and weren't you a clever sales person! Favourites? Hmm. The circlet with the diamante bow, the blue flower brooch/earring set, and the cameo, of course. Who's the cute poo...
  25. Gorgeous piece of furniture.
  26. That pebble base is awesome!
  27. Many thanks Rick for your observations. As you have seen with many of my other pieces from Japan, they love them some gold (or silver) foil. I think it affects the purity of the work a bit here, but...
  28. So right Peggy, this could only be Japanese. Thanks for the confirmation about the clear layer too!
  29. Thanks Malkey for your appreciation. The lilac is pretty nice :)
  30. Bijou you have raised such a good point and one I couldn't state so well. Beauty made special by the unknowing.....
  31. You reveal the beauty in a poetic way Katherine, thank you. I appreciate your sensibility.
  32. Thanks Vintage Lamp. Happy you do.
  33. :))) Katherine.
  34. I thought you would get the haiku Katherine, being all literary and stuff. I just pretend.... Thanks for the love!
  35. Thanks Bijou. They are clever and beautiful in that very Japanese way. Thanks to you too Wandless Fairy. The bowl has lost a lot in the photographs, but I'm happy for you to prefer the vases lol!
  36. It's a beauty, and the ribs look slightly different to others I have seen. Nice one Ian!
  37. Fantastic, and Trifari quality.
  38. Lovely glass. SEA are a bit under rated I think.
  39. Nice site there Fob man!
  40. Katherine a share house is another word for hell lol. No really, it's when a group of people, usually students, rent a house together and share all costs. I was in one at the end of high school as my ...
  41. I agree. Many things from history are now considered too touchy for discussion, but they are still real. I think it reasonable for you to display this, after all you are not promoting the culture that...
  42. Wonderful. Everything about this post is wonderful.
  43. Fascinating vase.....love the shape and the colours pop!!
  44. Lovely comment, thanks Wand less Fairy.
